The si package --- A comprehensive (SI) units package
Maintained by Joseph Wright
Released under the LaTeX Project Public License v1.3c or later

Typesetting values with units requires care to ensure that the
combined mathematical meaning of the value plus unit combination is
clear.  In particular, the SI units system lays down a consistent
set of units with rules on how these are to be used.  However,
different countries and publishers have differing conventions on
the exact appearance of numbers (and units).  A number of LaTeX
packages have been developed to provide consistent application of
the various rules: SIunits, sistyle, unitsdef and units are
the leading examples.  The numprint package provides a large number
of number-related functions, while dcolumn and rccol provide tools for typesetting tabular numbers.

The si package takes the best from the existing packages, and
adds new features and a consistent interface.  A number of new
ideas have been incorporated, to fill gaps in the existing
provision.  The package also provides backward-compatibility with
SIunits, sistyle, unitsdef and units. The aim is to have one
package to handle all of the possible unit-related needs of LaTeX
